||Hazel Green, Alabama, USA|
I'm Tom (brown) and this is my brother, Jerry. We are ready for
Halloween in our forever home. Mom has been thinking about getting guinea
pigs for a long time. She especially loves black fur babies, so she
actually chose Jerry first. Mom doesn't like any of her fur kids to live
alone, so she picked me, too! A long time ago (fifty years) Mom had an
experience with the very fast breeding habits that we have. She wanted to
make absolutely sure we were both the same sex. Much to her surprise the
sales representative told her that PetsMart only sold male guinea pigs. We
think this is a very good idea.
We are just settling into our home. Mom cleans the cage twice a
day because we can be messy, and gives us good fresh food. She gives us
celery, which is our favorite, carrots, dandelions and timothy hay. Mom
got us this really neet bed. Sometime I sleep in it, Sometime Jerry
does. Then we both get in it together. I think my brother and I will have
a happy life here.
Your friend, Tom
